An important part of music education is providing our students with the opportunity to share what they have learned through performance. We encourage all of our students to experience the joys and challenges of performing. By performing, students will build self-confidence and strengthen presentation, social and goal setting skills.
Participating in most of the following events does not require an extra cost and is open to all Conservatory students:
The Sounds of Excellence Concert
This annual concert is held each spring at the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia. Students experience performing in a world class performance hall. This event is by audition only. This concert is generously supported by The Presser Foundation. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this event has been canceled for the 2020-2021 school year. We look forward to returning to the Kimmel Center in 2022!
Each year we host several student recitals in our 112 seat performance hall. Students enjoy recitals at Halloween, the Holidays and year end. All Fall 2020 recitals will take place via Zoom due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
Each spring we offer a relaxed cafe style event where our adult students can share their music with friends and family.
Students on Tour
Each month students volunteer their time and talents to perform 1 hour concerts to local senior living facilities for the purpose of enriching the lives of the seniors in our community. This outreach program is generously supported by Janssen Pharmaceutical. Unfortunately, this program is currently on hold due to Covid-19. We look forward to returning to our local senior centers as soon as it is safe to do so.
Piano Certificate Assessment Program
The Conservatory’s Piano Certificate Assessment Program is an excellent goal setting program for students to gauge their learning process. This is a non-competitive performance evaluation held each spring. It is open to all piano students but it is not a required program.
